When Reyna Grande's father leaves his wife and three children behind in a village in Mexico to make the dangerous trek across the border to the United States, he promises he will soon return from "El Otro Lado" (The Other Side) with enough money to build them a dream house where they can all live together. His promises become harder to believe as months turn into years. When he summons his wife to join him, Reyna and her siblings are deposited in the already overburdened household of their stern, unsmiling grandmother. The three siblings are forced to look out for themselves; in childish games they find a way to forget the pain of abandonment and learn to solve very adult problems. When their mother at last returns, the reunion sets the stage for a dramatic new chapter in Reyna's young life: her own journey to "El Otro Lado" to live with the man who has haunted her imagination for years, her long-absent father.
Cuando sus padres deciden cruzar ilegalmente la frontera mexicana en busca del sueño americano, Reyna y sus hermanos se ven forzados a vivir con su abuela, mientras esperan que sus padres regresen para comenzar una nueva vida junto a ellos. Pero las cosas no salen como lo planearon, y Reyna debe preparar su propia travesía hacia el otro lado, para vivir con el hombre que ha cautivado su imaginación durante años: su padre ausente. La distancia entre nosotros es una historia divertida y desgarradora al mismo tiempo: nos muestra cómo es la experiencia de ser inmigrante y retrata a la perfección los desafíos y dificultades que Reyna y sus hermanos tuvieron que enfrentar para asimilar una nueva cultura, un nuevo idioma y una vida familiar en el otro lado.
